Why is it...


that as you age your eyebrows get more sparse and your chin gets more prickly, I wonder?
I sit in the morning looking out to sea, my gaze is centred mainly into the strong magnifying mirror.  This way the early morning sun picks out every emerging prickle.
I turn my head this way and that in order to spy out the tough white ones, that like my chins have been around the block a few times.  If I grew them I would have a queue of fishermen lining up along the prom for the very latest in strong fishing line.  No plastic has been killed to make these beauties... organic even!
It never ceases to amaze me how after viewing my phizog from every which way, the odd one escapes my notice.  Hiding, no doubt in a wrinkle the like of which you see on our pothole infested roads.
Much later, coming on strong to a dishy man at a gathering, no not a  boil?  I trip to the ladies to powder my nose and horror of horrors there smack bang in the middle of my chin is a hair the like of which you would expect to see growing out of a witches wart!


Oh, the joys!

  1. I try not to look into a magnifying glass, they lie. I'm sure my skin doesn't really look like that.

  2. I don't like looking at myself in a mirror or photograph anymore. To me, I don't resemble myself at all.

    1. I feel the same, I wonder if our mothers felt the same, probably not?

  3. Oh how true are those comments about whiskers and wrinkles. Tweezers and razors are a girl's best friend.

    1. Every evening I carefully run a finger over my face, in fact I’m doing it now! That way I am ready for their early morning rout.

  5. And.....how quickly they grow! Forget to check for a couple of days and it's. oh my, have I been walking round like that!! My face is also decorated with little white " fatty" spots and my body now has lots of " blood spots". I can get some of the white ones out with a needle and squeezing, but can't do anything with the others !! Have a nice hair free day!

    1. I wonder if men go to such extremes as us girls? I think not!

      Hair cut today, facial tomorrow. On top of it all I don’t want to have a weather beaten salty sam sort of a complexion. Quite looking forward to it as it’s years since I last had anything even vaguely passed as a beauty treatment.
